Megadeth, Slayer, Motorhead, Glenn Hughes, Slipknot and more have all found their way into the capable writing hands of Joel McIver in one way or another. McIver has over twenty-two books to his credit as co-author or biographer, with a bunch more in the hopper.

Getting a look behind the curtain of the process of writing rock books is an interesting experience, and luckily Joel shares some of his insight with us here.His upcoming book My Life With Deth with Dave Ellefson will be out in October and is one of the many projects we discuss in this interview. Plus, there’s some news on his Rage Against The Machine book that is still in the works.

McIver also lets more secrets spill like what it was like to work with Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfy) on his upcoming book, what artists he thinks should write a book, and who he wasn’t able to convince to write their book just yet.

Check out the complete Joel McIver canon and more on his website.  Follow Joel on Twitter. Friend him on Facebook.
